"Any woman who chooses to behave like a full human being should be warned that the armies of the status quo will treat her as something of a dirty joke. That’s their natural and first weapon. She will need her sisterhood." This quote courtesy of @Pinstamatic (http://pinstamatic.com)
This is super hard to learn for anyone that has been through a narcissistic relationship. they make you believe they "really" need "you" and yet are just expert sociopaths and manipulative liars with the most charming personalities.
A woman can always tell if a man loves her by how much time he is willing to invest. Money spent is meaningless, but time spent is priceless. I don't want him to spend money on me just being together, that's all I want
